Discovery Process

The Discovery Process is unique and is designed to give an in-depth perspective on any person. Its purpose is aligned to performance improvement through personal & professional development.

Emotional Intelligence

We look at how a person thinks and makes decisions and measure these findings against business related competencies such as Leadership, Gaining Commitment and Communication. It identifies their natural talent and levels of Self Awareness and helps maximise their strengths whilst aligning them to the role they currently fulfil. It can identify potential blockers to performance and highlight the correct approach to remove them.

Value Structure

The second area we evaluate are the Values of each team member. Values are what drives a person and by understanding what a person’s principle drivers are, both they and their peers are able to create the correct levels of engagement to get the job done to high performance levels. By understanding these motivators, you attain accountability. Once you have this, obtaining the commitment to do whatever it takes becomes easier.

Behaviours

Finally, we look at the behavioural perspective which is produced by the first two measurements to understand a person’s natural and adapted behavioural style. When we know this, we can measure work related stress levels that are current and likely to affect performance. We use this information to create the correct environment to allow the person to breathe whilst maximising productivity, efficiency and profitability in the organisation.

It also identifies better communication and collaboration strategies to make the workplace more focused on the goals of the organisation.

We use this observable insight to establish and refine those professional behaviours you want to witness, within the culture you want to live by.

Human Operating System – OneSource

OneSource® is a Cloud based, fully integrated, software solution that helps organisations assess the quality of their talent pool, along with the structure and robustness of their performance processes and then helps transfer skills and knowledge to those managing succession. It facilitates the integration of a number of key people development and management functions across the organisation:

Discovery Profile Locker
iCoach
Talent Management
Talent Recognition
High Potential Programme
Personal & Professional Development
360° Programmes
Competency Development
Succession Planning
Resource Planning

There are nine areas that OneSource® manages and each one of these critical areas is integrated into one system, a single source that HR, Senior Management, Learning & Development and Resource Planning can utilise to generate real-time management information that is easily accessible from any PC or smart enabled device.

Clients adopt OneSource® because it allows them to make evidenced based decisions right across the organisation that saves money, time and resource by increasing the management of performance, productivity, growth and profit.

OneSource® captures the output from the Discovery Process® and uses it as the platform from which development paths are created and effective performance management is established on an organisation wide basis. This approach is flexible, scalable and exceptionally cost effective, directly improving the performance of the organisation. When you compliment these with our People & Change offerings, iCoach®our Cloud based coaching and development solution and iPulse®, our performance diagnostic tool, your organisation has a complete, integrated solution to Performance Management.

iCoach

iCoach® is an integrated software solution that delivers on-line coaching for both personal and professional needs across critical areas of any organisation. It’s often a fact that only the senior managers or key individuals in an organisation, that are afforded professional coaching to help them cope with, or transition to, new roles and as such, the majority of the organisation sadly miss out on something that’s often recognised as essential.

iCoach® is designed to address this shortfall by offering a stand alone developmental platform, or by integrating directly into existing services to pinpoint and align, a coaching programme that can be delivered organisation wide.

iCoach® is not restricted just to business and has an Cloud-based version to allow SME’s and individuals, access to the coaching and development service on a ‘take as you need’ format.

iPulse

iPulse® is an integrated performance diagnostic that measures performance across critical areas of any organisation:

Team Effectiveness
Departmental Effectiveness
Organisational Health Check
Operational Effectiveness
Programme & Project Impact & Effectiveness
Leadership & Management Effectiveness
Stress Impact

Currently, for a client to gain insight into a project or establish how part of a programme is running, to take the ‘pulse’ of that programme, it is typical to call in external organisations, such as one of the big 4 and have consultancy services carried out, normally taking in excess of 6 weeks to formulate and produce a report which is based mainly on a set of high end, recognised questions that are designed to deliver findings that will invariably form the basis of the report.

iPulse® looks to use the same methodology and specific question sets, and deliver the report within hours directly into the mail box of the stakeholder who commissioned it for a fraction of the cost.

Pathfinder

A2X takes a blended learning approach to all of its People & Change solutions.

We often start the change journey with our Pathfinder methodology, which is a process to establish the journey past, present and future. The process is extremely robust and produces a working document with actions, options and milestones.

To complement this, we have developed a series of development programmes, workshops and one-to-one engagements that are designed to facilitate change within the individual, the team or the entire organisation. All modular and bespoke.

For those organisations that prefer to own the entire process, we have an accreditation programme that allows skills and knowledge transfer to happen should the client wish to adopt our solutions within the organisation on an ongoing basis.
